Yesterday I opined that I could hardly wait to see what would happen following ’s letter to Governor Sam Brownback over the new law nullifying federal attempts at in Kansas.

I didn’t have to wait long! Here is Brownback’s response:

May 2, 2013

Attorney General Eric Holder

Office of the Attorney General Washington, DC 20530

Dear Attorney General Holder:

The State of Kansas is in receipt of your letter in which you place Kansas on notice regarding the view of the Administration concerning the state’s Second Amendment Protection Act.

The right to keep and bear arms is a right that Kansans hold dear.  It is a right enshrined not only in the Second Amendment to the United States Constitution, but also protected by the Kansas .  The people of Kansas have repeatedly and overwhelmingly reaffirmed their commitment to protecting this fundamental right.  The people of Kansas are likewise committed to defending the of the State of Kansas as guaranteed in the Ninth and Tenth Amendments to the United States Constitution.

The state’s Second Amendment Protection Act, which expressly restates our commitment to these rights, was approved by wide, bi-partisan margins in the Kansas Legislature.  The measure was adopted by a vote of 35 to 4 in the Kansas Senate with the Democrat Senate Minority Leader supporting the bill.  The measure was adopted by a vote of 96 to 24 in the Kansas House of Representatives.  Again, the Democrat House Minority Leader voted for the bill.  This is not a partisan issue in Kansas.

The people of Kansas have clearly expressed their sovereign will.  It is my hope that upon further review, you will see their right to do so.

Sincerely,

Sam Brownback, Governor

From my perspective this is far too weak a response. That’s why Brownback is Kansas’ governor, and I’m not. My letter to Eric Holder would be based upon my understanding that he is assisting the president in his transformation of the United States from a republic into a dictatorship (see Trevor Loudon’s Barack Obama and the Enemies Within, see especially pp. 259, 270, 315, 377):

Mr. Attorney General:

We have received your outrageous letter stating that you intend to order federal officers to enforce laws in my state.

We welcome them. We have just the place for them: our El Dorado Correctional Facility.

Sam Brownback, Governor

For a much more reasoned response, I refer you to an excellent article by Joe Wolverton, a lawyer who writes for The New American magazine. He explains why Holder is off base, and explores the Supremacy Clause with great clarity.

Me? I just want to get it on with this thug.
